Sea Dog fish- Undeveloped fish from the 'Art of SOT" Book, Carved from wood
Here is a fish that I carved from basswood to look like one of the fishes in the "art of the sea of thieves" bookThere are 2 pictures of these fish, one on page 117
And one on page 191
Some of the fish on page 191 were used in the game before fishing came about and some were introduced for fishing ( the pondie picture is a spot on profile of the game fish, the splashtail is recognizable).This fish closely resembles the Betta and Dottyback fish in real life. Brightly colored, fancy fins, you would find this type of fish around coral reefs. I am thinking about the unmarked island between crooked masts and crooks hollow.
Other names I called this fish as I was carving it were "carrot fish" and "Skittle fish" ( after the rainbow colored candy). I have another one on my work table and will paint it a different color
